Black Forest St Blasien Abbey Dome
Bathed in beautiful white light, the huge 36 metre dome of St Blasien’s Cathedral is an architectural wonder of harmony and grace. With a circle of windows and columns, the entire church is flooded in a glorious light befitting its spiritual role.

In the south of Germany’s Black Forest, the humble town of St Blasien (now a health resort) belies its rich history as a Benedictine monastery of almost 1000 years. The cathedral and surrounding defunct monastery dominates the town but is worthy of a short visit to experience a masterpiece of architectural symmetry and elegance.

Welcome to Travel Wonders
My name is Mark and I’m a keen traveller. In fact, over the last 25 years, I’ve travelled to every continent and over 80 countries. This blog is about the most memorable destinations – the places I regard as the travel wonders of the world. I’m also a keen photographer, and have taken nearly all the photos you’ll see. During my travels, I’ve met some incredible people, seen inspiring places, viewed extraordinary wildlife and scenery and had some amazing experiences, and I’m writing these stories not only to entertain but primarily to inspire others to discover their own travel wonders.
